Superman once again proves himself incorruptible. He could enslave humanity with his power but instead seeks to protect it and even serve it. Superman’s power never gets to his head and that’s what makes him so special. The Ultimate Man is wrong in his assessment that we need more Supermen because as Wayland and Ultimate Man prove, power corrupts.
For those too young to remember, “The Death of Superman” was a huge storyline with major mainstream news coverage and it was possibly the first storyline where the main character actually died. Sure, characters died, you lost Uncle Ben, Gwen Stacy and Bucky but you never lost Spider-Man, Captain America and certainly not Superman, the greatest hero of them all!
